Everyone at some point has had a dream he wished would evolve. Whether your dream is to have a new career, a new lifestyle, rally for a cause or simply develop a new perspective, here are 
5 reasons why you should stop talking about your ideas or passions and start putting them into action.                                                 

1) If You Aren't Living Your Own Dream You Are Probably Living Someone Else's
 Are you helping your employer reach a dream  just wishing you could start yours? Are you instrumental in helping others achieve success but still thinking you don't have what it takes? Helping someone achieve their dream is a rewarding experience but if you never help yourself achieve yours, you are hiding your gifts and not willing to share with others.

2) True Passion Is Resilient
Maybe you have had the same idea in a different form for years. But if you continue to wonder what will happen if you step out of your box and give it your best shot, then maybe it is time to start the wheels turning. Even if you don't have all the resources, in this digital age there has never been an easier time to take the steps to move your dreams forward. I spell out some great steps to take in my latest newsletter.

3) There Is Never A Bad Time For An Idea To Start
There can be bad ideas and you will learn that as you experiment with yours but there never is a bad time for a new idea. Ideas, Dreams, Passions know no age. The world is full of children and adults who have committed to following a passion and made their world and the world of others a better place because of it.

4) Regret Is Far Worse Than Learning From A Mistake.
Nothing smacks below the belt as much as the regret we have because we didn't act on something.
Far better to make a mistake, give yourself a learning opportunity and move on than take your idea or dream to the grave with you. We create regrets; they don't just happen.

5) What You Don't Claim As Your Own Has The Right To Be Taken By Another.
You probably aren't the only person thinking about how to get an idea going. Nothing is worse than seeing something develop you had an idea for but never acted upon. If you don't open up that restaurant or tutoring service, develop your idea for a screenplay, begin that blog or develop that support group, someone else probably will...and then you will participate by THEIR rules!

Talk IS Cheap if that is all you do. Develop riches in your life...start to act!

It's your Dream your Idea, your Passion and it's your Move. Make it now.

Do you have any other reasons why you should start act on your passion NOW?

  3. This is one of your best posts! Love the reasons to stop talking especially the one that regret is worse than failure. I often have to remind myself of that!
